www.ropelatophotography.netI'm very fortunate in that every year around this time I get 9 days off work for spring break. This year I decided to head up the Oregon Coast and scope out some waterfalls. Last year and the year before that I headed down to Death Valley was fortunate to get some good light here and there. This shot is from my first ever trip into Mesquite Dunes and I was super fortunate to catch a sunset. It was 97 degrees as I sludged into the dunes far enough to get past all the footprints. I remember it like it was yesterday, and to this day when I turn my Merrells upside down, sand pours out. Cheers. Jared Ropelatowww.facebook.com/RopelatoPhotography
